The two Z8613 chips I posted a picture of are functionally equivalent and
are likely wired the same way.  In the case of the ceramic package, the
pins from the EPROM socket go straight into the ceramic where it must
connect to a similar circuit as the mini-PCB version.  You cannot remove
the socket or you will destroy the chip.

Here are two close-up pictures of just under the EPROM socket if it helps:
